Remembering Those Who Have Served

The observance of Veteran’s Day (also known as Remembrance Day) began at the end of World War I – the “War to end all wars” – which ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Each year on November 11, we honor all who have served in any war, and those who serve and have served in the military in non-war times.

Whether you call today Remembrance Day or Veterans Day, please join us in giving thanks to all those who are fighting for our freedom today and for those who have given of themselves in the past.

We remember you.

We honor you.

    What an amazing post and lovely tribute to veterans. My late grandfather was a veteran. He served in Vietnam. Every year on this day I remember him and the pride he carried in his heart every time he wore his veteran hat.
